In this paragraph, I wanted to convey how low Gary's life had become without his wife, Stacy. He had lost everything in the way of possessions and was beginning to lose those internal feelings that would keep him alive. Those dark feelings were beginning to encroach on his regular thinking.
After his shower he shuffled into the kitchen. He opened the door to a refrigerator which was as empty as his soul felt, hoping that a good fairy had placed even something as small as a glimmer of hope or, at the very least, some milk, inside. To his disappointment, the shelves were still empty, so he grabbed a partially filled box of cereal from the cabinet, walked out to the living room and sat on the floor. The living room used to be just that. It was a place where life existed and a place where they loved life together. They would watch movies, sip wine, get silly, laugh hard and love hard. Now there was no furniture and certainly, no happiness.
